About Our Place

Known as the 'Temple City', Udupi is famous for Krishna temple. It is a 13th century Mata established by saint Madhvacharya, founder of Dhvaitha philosophy. Krishna Matha is surrounded by the Ashta (eight) Matas which serve ShriKrishna one after another every two years known as Paryaya. The temple's celebration of Paryayothsava, Krishnashtami, Vitlapindi, is awe-inspiring. Devotees from all over the world visit the temple throughout the year. 

As a culturally rich place, it has given birth to many culture-special events and folk arts with their peculiar local flavor. The enthralling art Yakshagana is a very well-known art form from Udupi.

Excelling in the field of Banking service, Udupi has also become a pioneer of private educational institutions; MAHE, Manipal, has been attracting students from around the globe, and can be rightly called as a Mini-World.

The city serves delicious cuisine, especially vegetarian and seafood. In fact, Udupi Hotels have spread all over the world stealing hearts of people. 

Comprising all these rich factors along with the scenic beauty of its own, having greenery all around and the very famous Malpe beach on the west, Udupi attracts tourism too.
